# Partial Volume in a Flat Horizontal Oval Tank

Calculate the amount of liquid in a partially filled horizontal oval tank.

The horizontal oval tank here has a rectangle like center with a semi-circular ends. This calculator uses inches for measurements.

##### Approximate weight of Fuel or Water

one US gallon of water = 8.34 pounds.
one US gallon of diesel fuel = 7.1 pounds
one US gallon of gas = 6 pounds

#### Calculator

- enter the height of the horizontal oval tank in inches
- the width of the tank in inches
- the length of the tank in inches
- the depth of the liquid inside the tank in inches
- the weight of the liquid in pounds per US gallon

#### Results

- the volume of the horizontal oval tank in cubic inches
- the volume of the tank in cubic feet
- the volume of the tank in cubic metres
- the total amount of liquid the tank can hold in US gallons
- the amount of liquid inside the tank in US gallons
- the amount of liquid inside the tank in Imperial gallons
- the amount of liquid inside the tank in litres
- the amount of liquid inside the tank in cubic feet
- the weight of the liquid inside the tank based on lbs/gal US
- the amount of liquid it will take to fill this tank in US gallons

##### Formula

V = 0.5r²(Y-sin(Y))L+d(W-H)
where V is the volume
r half the tanks height
Y=2cos^{-}¹(r-d)/d
d the depth of the liquid inside the tank
W the width of the tank
H the tanks height
